Record signing events are special occasions that often mark a major step on a band’s journey to success. Naturally, this usually gives rise to celebration. Care is, however, recommended.
The record deal and record signing
Naturally, it is important to make sure the band gets the best deal possible. This means carefully reading every bit of fine print and questioning anything that seems odd or downright wrong before signing. History is packed with examples of bands forgetting to read the fine print and ending up with little to nothing, while their record companies made millions. There are, however, other dangers.
Often celebrating their breakthrough before, during, and after record signing events, bands and band members do have to get safely to and from the locations at which these events take place. It is important to ensure that, unless a chauffeur is available, at least one of the band members is fit to drive safely and prevent injuries by vehicle accident.
In a similar fashion, it is necessary to walk carefully (and steadily) when entering the premises to prevent slipping or tripping injuries. Wet flooring, trip hazards, and obstacles, on potentially poorly lit stairs, are all personal injuries waiting to happen.
Injury by faulty equipment
If the signing event is likely to be accompanied or followed by a stage performance, or first studio recording under the new label, it is vital to ensure all equipment is in good working order to prevent electrocution and other injuries by defective equipment.
Personal injury compensation
Claiming for injury compensation is made a lot easier than getting out of bad record deals by law firms like Accident Advice Helpline; a firm specialising in, and providing, legal assistance for injury compensation claims under conditional fee agreements for 14 years now.
